    Alright, what the fuck is this bullshit? I was in the boy scouts for 5 years and there was something special about getting out there with your buddies and all of their dads and doing/learning cool shit separate from the women that are involved in just about every other aspect of our lives. It wasn't sexist; it was just about male camaraderie. It won't be the same now.

    Boy Scouts will admit girls and allow them to earn Eagle Scout rank

    When I was in Girl Scouts, back in the dark ages, we got cooking and sewing badges. I wonder if the boys will be doing those too. Maybe it's already a choice--I don't know.
    My GS leader was not an outdoorsy type AT ALL. We went on one picnic and she forgot the charcoal. We did crafts and poisoned our families with our cooking.

    Just another example of the critically and tragic stupidity of progressives to erase sexual differences. Both physical and mental.
    Boys and Girls are different. And it is a good thing. A good thing that our education system is trying hard to eradicate.

    When I was in Scouts we learned to shoot. Do they still do that?

    I agree.

    This is starting to get ridiculous.

    I suppose there's nothing wrong with Scouts going co-ed. It's been WAY too long since I had anything to do with it to know what that would mean for scouting troops today. I think the camping trips could get awkward, though.

    I haven't been involved with the scouts in a number of years, but I was taught to shoot a bow and a rifle.
